lyrics

These are our voices
These are a single flame in song
These are our choices
These are the roads we travel on

These are our fingers
Up to their knees in spinning clay
These are our hands that grasp, and feet that turn away
These are our places
These are our every changing homes
Oh, can't keep a hold of it for long

Convalescent, I've been leaving all this time
This is how it feels to be alive.

It's like I'm stepping outside for the first time
And I can't believe that it's taken me such a long time
To manifest the world through my own two eyes,
Quiet myself down when I'm tellin' me lies,
And start to recognize
That this truth is mine
That I build the walls between inside and outside
And I'm doing the best that I can,
But I stand where I stand,
And I am only a man,
So I can only make the choice to accept this
My dialectics,
Had me livin' inside a head trip
Of perspectives
That I would always compare
To people and things
That I really couldn't see from right here,
Yo I was scared.

Throughout my life,
Someone had told me
The way that I was livin aint right, like
There's a certain set of things that a man has to have
And if you don't have a plan, well how do you get that??

I suppose it just comes
And I've only just begun.
So I'm takin' a trip up the coast,
Make the most of livin' before I turn into a ghost
Cause I'm feelin like
This is the only world that I'm gonna get,
But lost in my thoughts
I haven't stopped to see it quite yet,
So I get my feet wet,
Not knowing if I'm ready for that,
But I'm makin' a bet,
That givin' up is worth what I get
When I let go
